Last week we blogged about Dunn-Edwards color of the year for 2018. This week we will talk about Sherwin Williams color of the year for 2018.
According to Sherwin Williams they have chosen Oceanside SW6496 (172-C7) as their color of the year. It looks to be a green to blue color. You can copy and paste this link to check it out.
Sherwin Williams states it is a color of jewel-toned green with rich blue. They also state that it is elusive and accessible. A deep, complex color that gives a sense of familiar with a hint of unknown, Oceanside, unites together a peaceful balance of greens and blues that can be seen in what's new and old .
The blue awakens a multitude of moods depending on color and application. Despite this variation, blues are universally seen as intelligent, honest and interesting which makes blue one of the most beloved colors worldwide.
Oceanside's multi-dimensional, marine-inspired look can give welcoming feel as a color for a front door. Blue gives the feeling of loyalty and trust. Some say if you choose blue you are considered confident and dependable. Green gives a calming effect which helps to give the feel of contentment. Different shades of green can give a feel from relaxation to galvanizing.
Oceanside's green/blue tone can also help initiate creative thinking along with clear thought in your office, or create a soul searching, or self examination feel in your reading nook or bedroom.
Oceanside is universal in design and style from traditional to contemporary, mid-century modern to Mediterranean-inspired.
These are the colors Sherwin Williams is recommending to use with Oceanside. Sherwin Williams also states, that the color Oceanside can make metallics shimmer, like beach stars at dusk. They suggest to set a stage and create drama.

2018 Color of Year from Dunn-Edwards
According to Dunn-Edwards they have chosen Green for 2018 color of the year. They call it The Green Hour DET544. Green seems to be popular right now.
They have a video about it on youtube I have posted the link for you to view.
I feel this picture shows how the color can look inviting. Green is known to have a grounding effect, it helps to connect you to the outdoors.
Remember back in July we blogged about favorite color of the world was Marrs Green. We also blogged on the house we painted Escape Gray back in August, but when you look at the picture you can see it is a light green (you can see picture if you scroll down to Just Finished).

About The Green Hour, known throughout French history as l’heure verte, "The Green Hour" is described as the 5-o’clock hour or twilight, when bistros and cafés were filled with patrons, and absinthe was the drink of choice. Absinthe grew in popularity in the 1840s when French troops were served the drink. By the 1860s, absinthe was so popular in French cafes, bistros and cabarets, it became known as The Green Hour. While the drink color is a more vivid green, The Green Hour reflects the time and era.
